There are not many roads that do not run through a single settlement over a distance of 34 kilometres. The Nockalm Road in Carinthia is one: between the two ticket offices - to the south several kilometres outside of the community of Ebene Reichenau, to the north right on the fringe of Innerkrems - there is nothing other than bends and nature. And several pretty places to stop in rustic houses and huts in which authentic Carinthian fare comes to the table.
The reason for the "nothing" along this route has been known as the "Nockbergs National Park" since 1987. All around these Nockbergs, these strange, roundly smoothed mountains at a maximum height of about 2,400 metres, stretches the largest stands of larch- and stone pine trees in the eastern Alps.
The Goldeck road, with a length of 14.5 km, runs from Zlan to Goldeck Endparkplatz "Seetal" to 1.895 m. Ten wimples and parking places along the road always offer beautiful views of the Milstatt Alps and Lake Millstatt, the Nocky Mountains, the Giltaler Alm, the Karawanken to Villach and the Drau Valley.You can discover the snow-capped peaks of the Julian and Carnic Alps. With wonderful views along the Goldeck road to the most beautiful destinations in Carinthia.
Situated at an altitude of 1,933 metres is Austria's highest barrage wall – the barrage wall of Kölnbrein Dam. Even getting there is a small adventure: An exciting tour on the 14.4 km Malta High Alpine road, characterised by rock tunnels and hairpin bends.
Winding and Breathtakingly Beautiful
The numerous waterfalls along Malta High Alpine Road also gave Malta Valley the name "Valley of the plummeting water". Particularly impressive thereby are the "Malteiner water features": here, the water rushes into the depths below over several rock ledges until it finally reaches the stunningly beautiful "Blauen Tümpfe" (blue pools). The road is characterised by a natural stone tunnel carved out of the rock and by sharp bends, turning the journey into a driving pleasure for motorists and motorbike riders. Two traffic lights at the narrowest points guarantee the safety of our guests. You can park your vehicles at the end of the road, from where you can comfortably reach the further attractions on foot.
